One of the US's hottest DJs and one of the UKs hottest DJs have created one of the best Dancehall acts that is performing hit tour dates in 2011. Major Lazer consists of DJs Diplo and Switch and has been taking the world by storm with a top 10 album and concert dates that rival those of any DJ in the world. While there's no new album on the horizon, Major Lazer has upcoming tour dates in 2011 at some of the biggest music festivals in the US.
Diplo and Switch met while working with M.I.A. and decided to form an act based on a love of Dancehall. Their debut album, Guns Don't Kill People…Lazers Do, was released in 2009 to critical acclaim. Since that time, Major Lazer and their hype man Skerrit Bwoy have been promoting hit singles like "Pon de Floor" on international tour dates that have been praised by fans.
While Major Lazer might not have many tour dates in 2011, they are performing at some of the most high profile and widely attended music festivals in the US. Next up for Major Lazer is a tour date on the last day of the Outlands Festival in San Francisco on August 14, followed by an appearance at Live At Squamish Festival in Canada on August 20. Their final 2011 tour date is at The Voodoo Experience 2011 on the weekend of October 28. Although, there's no news on a new album, fans can gleam that, with so few tour dates in 2011, Major Lazer must be up to something big.
